works in over 20 schools across London and has now expanded its successful provision UK wide with support from Urban Saints and local sports coaches. Most of our work is done in primary schools, where we take and manage PE lessons, lunch and after school clubs.
Despite this, we have also worked in secondary schools, where we concentrate on mentoring, using sports to build relationships with young people and make a positive contribution to their lives. All our coaches have lots of experience in taking PE lessons and clubs and not only seek to teach children PE, but also promote values and life skills too.
KICK SW is the regional provision of all that Kick London and Urban Saints do in the local area.
We current deliver national curriculum PE lessons (in lots of sports) in some schools and often this is to cover PPA time, but not always. Assemblies, sports coaching, lunchtime club and after-school club are offered.
We currently provide one to one mentoring, and provide bespoke programmes for small groups, which combine mentoring based activities with Futsal/Handball sports coaching.
In the community we run highly successful doorstep projects, including Street Football competitions which have been very successful in creating diversionary activities for youth in an area. Our coaches are all qualified to minimum Level 1 in their respective sport, and the Lead Coach holds a UEFA C Licence in Football Coaching and is a qualified Futsal coach.
Elevate are experienced providers of Futsal, we have delivered the game to young people for the last 7 years and were the first community organisation in Wales to deliver Futsal at grass roots level.

“Futsal was important in helping to develop my ball control, quick thinking, passing… also for dribbling, balance, concentration…futsal was very, very important, no doubt.”
“The smaller court helped my footwork skills, the nature of the game made me feel so free when I played. If it wasn’t for futsal, I would definitely not be the player I am today.”
“In Argentina, when I was a young boy, I used to play a lot of futsal on the street and with Newell’s Old Boys. It was a really fun game that’s helped me a great deal.”
“It helped me to become the player I am today. There you don’t have time to think, you are always tightly marked and you develop a sense for performing in small spaces”
